Does anyone here use such a feature on their iPhone or Samsung phone? Does it work well? Before I go through the effort to learn how these features work, I figured I would ask about other’s experiences.
given the mess autocorrect / autocomplete makes, it’ll be interesting to see how the speeching thing works…
I’ve used voice to text on iOS a good bit. Background noise is a problem. Doing it in public seems rude to me, but that’s an opinion. For a short message it’s faster to poke it in on the Chiclet keyboard. For a long message I wait until I get to a computer with a big boy keyboard. Lots of misspellings and incorrect words to fix. Overall, a C+.
Autocorrect is responsible for the demise of English.
Their, there, they’re, its, it’s etc.
talk to text creates most of these miscues, I contend
because figuring context is a bit harder.
I use it, and just for laughs I’m using it in this response. It usually works better if I come back and proofread, but I most commonly use it when my hands are occupied or I have more to say than I want to tap out on the keyboard.
I’m fairly certain, however, that there is a small but sentient being inside my phone who hates me and is out to convince the world that I am drunk, illiterate, or some combination thereof.
The opportunity for science! A test sequence checking the accuracy of speech to text after each of a number of glasses of wine…
The problem is that most of the time I’m sober…and of all the things I’ve been called, illiterate isn’t one of them!
Free pass on literacy. You could be the observer for the science experiment.
We can add lazy too.
